    Why should anyone celebrate this date?

    No matter how one looks at it, "Why should anyone celebrate this date?" is not an answer to the question "How widespread is the celebration or commemoration of this date?"

    You make the common mistake of most casual observers and assume there was a year 0. It's actually 4003BC.

    If that date refers to the first day of creation, I do not
    think that date comes very close to the true date. But I
    can not say that I know when it was. I have no idea if
    anyone at all celebrate this date. I think the Jews believe
    one of there Holy days on their calendar, which is the start
    of the Jewish civil year I understand, marks the first day
    of creation. But that day would fall on different days each
    year on the calendar we use. That is about all I have to
    offer; but I just thought of something you might want to
    check, that is Wikipedia. Maybe there is something there
    that would lead you to an answer to your question.

    Certainly not a complete answer, but at least it tells you that commemoration of this date isn't so widespread that everybody has heard about it.

    My OP gave you the impression that I thought "everybody has heard about it"?

    No, but I thought you wanted to know how widespread it is.

    Well, it had to start on some day of the week if you go back in time now matter
    how you think it all started. Looking at from the birth of Christ or not matters
    how?
